Material & Manufacture process: Cast Marble
statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek Marble stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as
a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the statue design. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek Marble stone, which gives it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are finished by hand to ensure the finest quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant doesn’t have bubbles, will not crack, and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
Please note: Our statues are not carved. Natural marble statues are hand carved and command a very hefty price. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority public.
This article is based on on a 2nd-century BC marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike (Victory) «Nike of Samothrace» which since 1884, has
been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world. H.W. Janson described it as “the greatest masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture.”
Please note: The proportions of the statue are correct and closer to the original statue.
What I would like you to notice is that the wings are detachable and that the surface of the statue is not as smooth as it is in the statue in its smaller versions. But this is to make it look as real as possible. As for the rest we can assure you that it is a very beautiful statue. It is heavy and solid and suitable to outdoor conditions.
